We’ve sent out winners cheques to over 5,500 lucky people in our local community this last year, and amongst the many winners we’ve seen a £15k rollover winner!

The purchase of a book of 40th celebratory draw tickets helped pay for an in-patient’s meals for a day
Christmas gift vouchers bought for loved ones helped provide over 200 pamper sessions for our patients
How do we raise such a fabulous amount of money – over £1 million every year?! We think one reason could be that whilst many charity lotteries have increased their entry cost, we’ve retained many of our loyal supporters (some joined in 1996, the year Pilgrims Hospices Lottery began) by choosing to keep our weekly entry cost to just £1. You’re then able to choose how much you would like to give. You can have more than one entry into our weekly draw, which is great news for you as you can increase your chances of winning, and even better news for us as we raise even more funds to help provide our compassionate care. A real win win!
If you aren’t already a member of our weekly Lottery draw, you can join using your preferred payment method; join online or call our friendly team on 01227 379 741. You’ll receive confirmation and your membership numbers in the post. As soon as your payment is received, you’re in the draw and will continue to be all the time funds are in your Lottery account.
There are 106 guaranteed weekly prizes plus a rollover, which has to be won at £20k. You’ve got to be in it to win it! From then on, just sit back and wait for your winning cheques to be mailed out you, no need to claim – but if you would like to check, the winning numbers are available on our website every week.
Best wishes and thank you again for all of your support.
